tumblr_memxxuMeEV1rhqlpao1_500

After an exciting and fulfilling 2013, I am looking forward to an even bigger and crazier 2014!  I ended the year and am starting the year Lizzie style.  I spent all day yesterday and will be spending today working on the second draft of a play I wrote. I’m looking forward to many more projects like this in 2014, including finishing scripts!

So… let’s get this party started and with some amazing events!

Hello all you beautiful people!  August is going to sizzle with so much amazing stuff I can hardly wait!  There are a couple amazing shows, I’m featuring in or hosting and we are gearing up to shoot a music video for a little ole script I wrote.

Anyone interested in being part of the crew OR being a Zombie contact me at lizzieviolet13 [at] gmail [dot] com.  The music video is for the the killer song ‘Zombie Love’ by Toronto’s most hated band I Hate Todd!  Check out their page or message me for more info.  We also have an invite set up on Facebook if you would like to be notified.
